From its inception, the point of video conferencing was to allow face-to-face communication with the eye-to-eye contact, because people wanted more than just hearing each other's voices over the phone, in a conference meeting or a call. They wanted to see non-verbal cues for enhanced communication. After all, with enhanced communication comes better deliverability of one's message, which can translate to greater sales and profitability.
This human-centric technology extends the reach of companies to interact with their customers in a revolutionary way. The 3-D HD kiosks can be compact units placed on a counter, freestanding kiosks or large three-dimensional systems featuring full height, life-size people. The utility of this technology in a multitude of fields like conferencing, advertising, customer service, long distance learning and so on make it a versatile tool that can revolutionize the field of communication. There have been several roadblocks like the cost of ISDN, image quality, fire walls, quality of service, ease of use, the cost of deployment, and real return on investment to the implementation of this technology. However, the advances in the telecommunication technology coupled with the ever increasing reach of the internet to every nook and corner of the world are driving this market ahead.
There are considerable benefits of using this technology - it eliminates the need for travel as meetings and presentations can be done from one's own office. This results in the reduction of unnecessary hassles and a boost to the morale of the employees. It also enables swifter and a more personal service to the customers in sensitive sectors like banking and insurance.
Major companies like Microsoft, Cisco and Sony are working towards improving this technology and making it feasible for commercial applications.
